Marcus Hotels & Resorts Enhances Successful Miller Time Pub & Grill Restaurant Concept

Milwaukee, Wis., May 2, 2013. . . . .Marcus® Hotels & Resorts, a division of The Marcus Corporation (NYSE: MCS), today announced it has reintroduced its Miller Time Pub & Grill concept, creating a comfortable, neighborhood social spot while paying homage to its beer-inspired roots.

The new concept is about the perfect pairing of beer and food.  To enhance the dining experience, the restaurant, in partnership with world-class brewer MillerCoors, offers more than 25 draft options and over 50 brands of beers in a variety of growlers, yards or flights.  Changes to service include staffed certified cicerones (beer experts) who are trained and tested on their beer knowledge, and available to help guests find perfect beer pairings for every menu selection.  The expanded menu features a variety of specially crafted burgers, along with lighter, healthier salads, hearty entrees including crab cakes, fish, chicken, steak and an intriguing selection of desserts.  The new brand offers a beer of the month, happy-hour drafts, beer dinners and beer flights – perfect for the beer enthusiast or novice who wants to learn more about their favorite brew.

“The enhanced Miller Time Pub & Grill concept is about making memories in a comfortable, neighborhood restaurant with great food and great beer – all at a great price,” said Chris Anderson, senior vice president, sales, marketing and brand development for Marcus Hotels & Resorts.  “Our knowledgeable and friendly servers will be there to educate patrons on all beer products and assist with their menu selection.  The menu features a variety of craft burgers and appetizers that pair well with our beer selections.  Whether you are watching a game on one of our many TVs or enjoying happy-hour specials with co-workers, friends or family, Miller Time Pub & Grill is a place to have fun, relax and enjoy the company you are with.”

Keeping the storied history of MillerCoors in mind, the concept will feature MillerCoors décor, including a collection of iconic memorabilia and artifacts, photos and vintage ads, as well as a retail area where guests can purchase MillerCoors and Miller Time Pub & Grill merchandise.  The restaurant also features a High Life Lounge area with soft seating for group gatherings and a variety of live entertainment.  A large, 30-foot bar serves as the focal point of the restaurant.

Marcus Hotels & Resorts revealed the new Miller Time Pub & Grill concept at the restaurant’s original location at the Hilton Milwaukee in Milwaukee, Wis. this week.  The company plans to open its second restaurant location at The Cornhusker, A Marriott Hotel in Lincoln, Neb. in August.  Additional locations for the new Miller Time Pub & Grill concept are being considered.
